No. Some third party recruiter the other day called me and tried to convince me that BDO was going to take over the number 4 spot lol


If forvis becomes number 4, i will join them lol


Markets wouldn’t allow that


Someone buy our audit practice so I can start trading GameStop


I thought the PwC acquisition of BDO was getting finalized soon?

Yes, we’ll be rebranding as PB&J

Following the right people on LinkedIn is a game-changer. I follow quite a few folks who have side hustles in recruiting. Last week, one reshared a virtual recruiting event for a big tech firm. I registered and it just so happened that the event was the same day. After the speaking portion of the event, they had opportunities to have one-on-one conversations with recruiters. After, I was sent a link to a role to apply to. That conversation led to an interview this week.

What are your opinions on having a website? I feel like it could go a long way me an identity. Is it necessary to have one right off the bat or did you wait until you had a solid client base first?


What are some of your best productivity hacks?


I feel like my net worth is finally snowballing. Ive been tracking my net worth monthly for the last 6 years. At end of 2019, I was at 400k. It was remarkable to see myself at 600k by end of 2020.

I had set a goal of 800k by end of 2021, but I'm already at 730k just a little over a month in. Main drivers have been the market's strong performance, Google stock, RE appreciation and salary increases. Feeling blessed 🙏

Anyone else have stories of when they felt like the snowballing started? 🙏🙏


how do you deal with people who aren't creative telling you how to do your job? for example dissecting design work or copy despite having zero experience in creative. said people are above my position so can't exactly tell them to get on their bikes.


How did you transition from big law lit to a solid in-house gig? Is it possible to land one of these jobs applying in the ordinary course, or are the online posts an HR requirement with no real meaning? And for those that went to a client, who initiated the conversation? TIA


What does it mean to be "counseled out"? Does the firm give you time to find a job? Do they help you find a job? The term sounds much nicer than just being let go.
